Is Microsoft aware of the large scale spamming going on to MSDN groups? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Lately large scale spamming has been going on.

    You need to do something on this, it should be possible to restrict a user id to say one update per minute, and perhapsa fresh post / thread every 5 minutes ?

    04/09 - This is till happening

    Cheers

  • Thanks Greg for posting this. We are currently aware of these spam attacks going on and are working on additional spam mitigation (something very similar to what you proposed). In the future if you use the 'report as abuse' feature, an email will be triggered to our support team who will ban the user ASAP. Again thank you for sending this our way!

  • Not yet, but as mentioned please do mark these threads as abusive when you see them. We hope to release the additional mitigation soon. Thanks!

    >> What is hard about restricting a user / ip address on the number of forum posts ?
